Does anyone know if there's a service in Australia like Give A Share of Stock as a Unique Gift Idea - Official GiveAshare.com Website - One Real Share of Stock or Oneshare.com - Buy One Real Share of Stock. Gifts of Disney Stock and More! which would allow me to purchase a small quantity of shares (maybe just 1) with a printed certificate, suitable as a gift? Or is there some way I can do this myself? Alternatively, if I do go with a US share, would it be a major hassle for the gift recipient to register the share in their name? I mean, it's primarily for novelty value, I suppose, but it's still better if they really own the stock. It just wouldn't be much of a gift if it creates a headache (or cost) for them.
